Whether your goal is to play hockey, figure skate, or just skate safely and confidently for fun, everyone has to start somewhere!
Learning to ice skate is easier and more fun with the help of a coach! With a little determination, coaching, and practice, you'll glide forward and backward, showing your family and friends what you can do on the ice!
Coach Aimée offers beginner private lessons for skaters age 2 and half and up, for at least 30 minutes at Ice Vault in Wayne NJ, Skylands Ice World in Stockholm, NJ or SportsCare Arena (Aspen Ice) in Randolph, NJ.
For the best results, lessons should be consistent and are recommended weekly - with at least as much additional practice time on your own.
Available times are limited to the session availability offered at the rink.
It's best to secure your preferred times each week as soon as you decide you want lessons! Standing lessons weekly on the same day and time have first priority.
Lessons slots often fill up quickly, and Aimée often has a waiting list in the winter months!

Even the best skaters in the world fall. It'is a necessary part of learning and does not need to be scary. Coach Aimée will help you learn how to fall safely and get back!
Control and balance are key to successful skating. Coach Aimée will show you how to march, glide, and swizzle with confidence without using the wall!
For many skaters learning how to skate backward is a big goal! Coach Aimée can show you how to march backward, wiggle and even glide backwards!
Once you get moving, you'll need to know how to stop!
Spoiler Alert: Unlike roller skating, the toe pick is not used for stopping ice skating!
Balancing on one foot is critical to successful skating no matter your discipline! Learn how to get started with one-foot glides and move on to edges!
All skate blades have two edges - outside and inside. You have two feet and can skate forward and backward, so there are eight edges that you need to learn. More advanced skills like turning and crossovers require strong edges!
Learning how to turn is a fundamental skill that you will need in hockey or figure skating. It's important to learn the correct turning technique which requires a strong check for control and safety.
Crossovers - both forward and backward -require a lot of patience and practice. Powerful hockey and figure skaters have excellent forward and backward crossovers that assist them in accelerating with speed and control
The beginning curriculum includes all the fun stuff like beginner spins, lunges, bunny hops, toe hops, spirals, and more!
